Kim Kardashian suffered a major wardrobe malfunction ahead of her Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance in NYC on Wednesday night.

Later, the reality star, 31, posted pics of her in the intact, skin-tight leather number.

"I'm wearing a leather Prada dress and Christian Louboutin heels. Had a little wardrobe malfunction but my wonderful glam team were on hand to save the day! I love this dress so nothing would stop me from wearing it!! LOL."

On Thursday, Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney announced that they are set to launch a makeup collection, called Khroma Beauty, which will roll out at Ulta this December.

"Growing up we would play with my mom's makeup and from a young age I always wanted to be a makeup artist!" Kim wrote on her blog. "Of course now makeup plays such a a huge role in all of our lives, whether we're on camera, at a shoot glammed up or just keeping it natural day to day and it's a dream come true to be able to create our own line of products to share with you guys. We can't wait!"
